Our friend Robyn Lesh, who has graced these pages in the past for
her T37 and college sailing achievements, is in the news again.
Here is how proud dad, Class Secretary WIll Lesh, puts it
in the the recent Model Yachting magazine:
"The T37 family will be interested to hear that my daughter, Robyn,
who grew up as an integral part of the T37 process, building and racing T37s
from when she was very young, has recently been offered a position
on the design team, as one of the design engineers, for the New York Yacht Club
/BMQR Americas Cup Challenge boat for the races in New Zealand. Very exciting!"
In an effort to equalize performance in strong winds, some regattas
may impose a masthead weight penalty to bring boats into compliance
with an in-air or in-water test of righting moment.
This will be announced in a regatta's Notice of Race.
